My laptop was stolen...is there a way i can recover it

With a new technology nowadays i possibly think i can track it if the thieves use it for internet. My friend told me that in every laptop it has its own unique serial number. Can you tell me more about this technology. Is there anyone or an agency from government or private group would help me with this problem. Your response is really appreciated. Thank you.

Sure ... well its not about the serial number ... if ur laptop has something called lowjack ...contact the mfg of the laptop and if u dont have that than in the details of the computer u will have the MAC address of the LAN card ... if u cant find that call the ACER guys and give them the serial number they will be able to locate the MAC address for you ... because they have all the details of the components in ur system and once u get that approach all the internet provider ... with the help of the local police and give them the MAC address if the person who has stolen ur laptop is using internet he will be caught

My 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland, purchased in Melbourne Australia, has been stolen. Is it possible to disable it remotely using the vehicle's telematics?


I don't think so. Unless you have the remote controller for the vehicle's telematics.

If you had a theft recovery system like LoJack installed in the vehicle, contact the appropriate agency to track/recover your vehicle.

Car stolen last night. any way for the car to be tracked???


I read an article about how to find a stolen car there: https://reolink.com/what-to-do-when-car-is-stolen/
Besides filing a report to police, using GPS tracking system to track down your stolen vehicle, there are 5 ways you can have a try:

Way 1. Use Security Camera Systems to Find Your Stolen Car

With the increasing of security awareness, more and more people install security camera systems to prevent home break-ins. Hope you are one of them, because security camera systems are one of the best ways to find your stolen car and vehicle.

One of the most welcomed features of security camera systems is 24/7 continuous recording. If you park your car near your home, your security camera systems will record everything happening to your car. Check all of your home security cameras, especially the one in your garage. Nothing can escape security camera systems' "detective eyes". With the car thief's clear image, and his general escape route, the likelihood of finding your stolen car will significantly increase.

Moreover, you can ask for permission to check your community's security camera systems. If your car is stolen in your community, security camera systems will record the trace of your stolen car. A stolen Chevrolet Silverado car owner got his car back by checking a primary school's security camera systems. All in all, don't forget this effective way when your car is stolen.

Way 2. Call Every Cab Company When Your Car Is Stolen

Whatever the situation is, calling all the cab companies in the area where your car is stolen is definitely a good option to find your stolen car. Taxi drivers seriously outnumber police, thus increasing chances of finding your car. Besides, you should give enough reward, such as $100, to the taxi driver who finds your stolen car. Reward is an incentive to encourage more people to join your stolen vehicle search team, which increases the possibility of recovering your stolen car.

Way 3. Check the City's Transportation Website for Parking Violation

When your car was stolen, the car thief would park your car somewhere and then abandoned it. The car was ticketed and put into the parking violation database, which is available online apparently. You can check if your stolen vehicle is in this database and then go to the area where the violation takes place. After that, contact the police immediately, they will search your car and then release it to you if they find it.

Way 4. Check for Your Stolen Car's Parts Being Sold Online When Your Car Is Stolen

If your car has been parted out, finding who is selling those parts could lead you to recover your wheeled baby. You can use automated checking system, such as Craigslist checker, to track down your stolen vehicle. If you can identify parts from your stolen car, make sure that you contact the police before arranging any meeting with the seller. Car thieves are dangerous guys. Accompanied by the police, you can get your stolen car back more safely and smoothly.

Way 5. Find Your Car with VIN (Vehicle Identification Number)

A vehicle identification number (VIN) is a unique code used by vehicle industry to identify individual motor vehicles, towed vehicles, motorcycles, scooters, mopeds, etc. A car can be tracked through a vehicle identification number.
VIN not only helps you check if your car is stolen, but also plays an important role on recovering your stolen car. First, go toAutoCheck, and purchase vehicle history report. The cost of the report will be between $30 and $40.
Enter your vehicle identification number and credit card details on the vehicle history report search screen, and you will see a chronological history of the places where your car was registered, titled and serviced. The last known registration or service should be the most recent location of your stolen vehicle. Thus you can narrow down the search range when your car is stolen, and get your car back fast.

How to recover a stolen gps


Hello,

Unfortunately there is no means of tracking the stolen GPS.
If you have a record of the serial number, you could report it to the police.
The GPS may show up at a local pawn shop and if the police have the serial number on file, they could possibly recover it for you.

I'm David from Kampala Uganda.I had my Compaq CQ62 stolen yesterday from Watoto Church where I volunteer. I want to know if there is a possibility of tracking it within Kampala. If I have its serial...


Unfortunately,unless you installed tracking software/hardware, there is no way to track it. The best thing you can do is to report it stolen (with serial number) to Compaq and local authorities.

My samsung was stolen is there any way i could track it if they try selling it online? ihave the s/n numer


Your chances of recovering it are very slim. If you have given the report to local police and Samsung, about the only thing you can do is run a search on the serial number at random and hope the thieves are stupid enough to actually list it in an ad. Depending on the age of the set, they may be 'parting it out' in which case the SN wouldn't matter anymore.

Can I track my stolen cell phone with its EMEI number and the new user


Make sure you contact your network provider who will be able to track/recover any stolen cell/mobile Plus be able to block it to prevent it being used while its being tracked.
Only network provider can do this and/or willing to do this, There are some private websites who offer the same service but only your network provider or phone manufacture will be able to block it and track it in real-time.

I had a laptop stolen out of my car are there numbers that can be traced if i hava a regestration on it or am i just out a pc


If you have the MAC address you might be able to track it down if its ever used.
Also try contacting your manufacturer if you have any documentation or serial numbers of your laptop. Your manufacturer or retail store might have a service, or can track whether someone else re-registers it,

Besides that all you can really do is hope.
When an item is stolen many times its hard to track down because of the surplus amount of stolen items.

The MAC address i think is ur best bet, but you'd have to dig around and its not going to be worth it, because the mac address is officially embeded on your laptops hardware, Most thieves are not smart enough to realize that.
